Four-stage battery charger

15 amp @ 12 volt 12 amp @ 24 volt

Description
Cummins Power Generation fully automatic battery chargers - using switched mode power electronics - are constant voltage/constant current chargers incorporating a 4-stage charging algorithm. Designed for use in applications where battery life and reliability are important; these chargers, complete with built-in equalize charge capability, are ideal for stationary or portable starting battery charging service. To achieve optimum battery life, a 4-stage charging cycle is implemented. The four charging stages are trickle, bulk, absorption and float. The trickle stage safely charges overly discharged batteries. It protects a damaged or shorted battery from excessive current. During bulk charge a constant current is applied to quickly restore the maximum battery charge level in the shortest amount of time. The absorption stage applies a constant voltage to the battery to bring the battery to 100% capacity. The float stage tailors the constant voltage output to maintain the battery at full capacity while serving DC operated loads. An optional temperature sensor may be used to adjust charging rate based on internal battery temperature in the absorption and float stages. Use of a battery temperature sensor helps to increase battery life by preventing over or under charging of the battery. The battery temperature sensor also protects the battery from overheating. Temperature compensation is recommended in all applications, but is particularly valuable for generator sets in outdoor applications. Battery chargers are field-configurable for charging either 12 or 24 VDC battery systems and for operation at 50 or 60 Hz. Output voltage and battery type selection is done through the alphanumeric display.

Features
Protection - All models include a 20 amp DC output breaker. Re-settable breakers are used for input voltages 240 VAC and lower. For over 240 VAC branch circuit rated fuses are used. Easy installation - Clearly marked terminal blocks and panel knockouts provide convenient connections of input and output leads. User display - Output voltage and current, fault information and configuration options are indicated on the alphanumeric display. Monitoring - An LED indicates the condition of the charger. Green indicates normal charging operation, amber indicates equalizing and red indicates a fault condition. Adjustable float voltage Float voltage can be set through the alpha-numeric display for optimum battery performance and life. Temperature compensation - An optional external sensor is available for temperature compensated battery charging. Faults - The charger senses and annunciates the following fault conditions: Input overvoltage, input undervoltage, AC power loss, battery overvoltage, battery undervoltage, charger circuitry over temperature, battery over temperature, unrecoverable battery and overload/overcurrent. Includes 30 volt/2 amp isolated contact for common alarm. Parallel redundant operation - Chargers can be operated in parallel for redundant reliability or additional charging capacity. Vibration resistant design - complies with UL 991 vibration resistance requirements. UL 1236 (BBHH) Listing - for use with lead acid batteries in generator set installations. Also suitable for use with NiCad, gel and AGM batteries.

Warning: Back feed to a utility system can cause electrocution and/or property damage. Do not connect generator sets to any building electrical system except through an approved device or after building main switch is open. Warning: For professional use only. Must be installed by a qualified service technician. Improper installation presents hazards of electrical shock and improper operation, resulting in severe personal injury and/or property damage.
